Once you leave Los Angeles to the north, going past Santa Barbara, you will notice a change in pace. People are not as frantic and nobody is trying to push you off the road with their car. When you stop somewhere, someone will strike up a conversation with you for no reason! I like it.
The landscape also changes. Dramatically. This is one of the scenes you encounter when pulling off the road somewhere along Highway 154. Cows and horses rule. I like that too. There are beautiful rolling hills with oak trees for miles on end. Perfect subject matter to paint!
After painting, you can visit the nearby Los Olivos for a cold brew, or whatever else you fancy! Life is good.
